who are you talking to?” “I am practicing, Bella. I am a ‘Roman Gladiator’!”
Harry, gladiators have not
been around for thousands of years. A long time ago, gladiators were a part of competitions that were held in large areas, usually with a crowd watching the competition. Today Harry, gladiators can only be found posing for pictures outside the Roman Colosseum or in history books.â€? 7
Where is the Roman Colosseum, Bella?”
“The Roman Colosseum is in Rome, Italy. Remember, Harry, we visited Venice, Italy with our family earlier this year. Italy is in Europe. A lot of people think Italy looks like a boot! Let’s look at the map before we get started. See Harry, Rome is here.” “Yes, Bella, I see Rome and I think Italy still looks like a boot!” “I agree Harry, but Italy is a very fancy boot!”
Let’s go Harry!
Like many of the other cities we have visited, Rome is full of history. There is a lot to learn about while we are here. Our first stop is the Flavian Amphitheater, more commonly known as the Roman Colosseum.”
Today, the Colosseum is one of the most visited sites in Rome. The Colosseum is in ruins now, mostly because of earthquakes and stone robbers. There is not much left of the original floor, but you can still see the ‘hypogeum’ from the inside of the Colosseum.”
